Sirius Black sat by himself on a bench in the courtyard. He was sitting hunched over, twiddling his wand with his fingers. His book bag sat at his feet, contents spilling on the stone floor as he waited. What in Merlin's name was taking James so long?
There weren't many other people in the courtyard. Sirius found himself exceptionally bored, but James had asked him to wait there. Sirius let out a loud sigh.
He watched as Severus Snape passed through the yard, hunched over and tightly hugging his books. He walked at an awkwardly fast pace, his eyes toward the ground.
Sirius found himself annoyed at the sight of him. Why did he have to walk like that? And his books- who carried their books like that? How it irritated him so. He just wanted to smack him right in that great giant nose of his. As Snape walked by him, Sirius gave a flick of his wand, and Snape tripped and fell to the ground.
Sirius let out a loud bark of laughter. "All right, Snivelly? Better watch where you're going next ti
Imprisoned Seeking Solace-Chapter TwentyAfter about six hours and the setting of the sun, Thor and Jane finally got the 'Okay' to let you get back to Loki. You trekked tiredly through the castle back to your and Loki's apartment. The guard let you in without question. Your eyebrows lifted as you saw a trail of red rose petals. It led to about the middle of the living room, then forked into two separate paths, one toward the hallway to the rest of the place and one toward the darkened corner of the living room. Next to the latter trail, there was a note, written in Loki's elegant hand, reading 'Follow Me First.' You smiled. This must have been part one of the surprise. When you followed the path, you came upon a stunning dress, in your favorite color. Pinned to it was a note: 'Put me on, then follow the other roses.'Imprisoned Seeking Solace-Chapter Twenty2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

With each step you took you could hear Tom’s muffled voice better, as soon as you could make out the words he uttered you froze on your spot—you were going to eavesdrop even if it meant for your feet to get extremely cold with the tiles under them.

Then you shift your gaze at the dinner table.
Your eyes widen, “Wow.”
This is the most beautiful dining table you’ve ever seen, with the great amount of scrumptious-looking and aromatic rations on top (pasta, steak and salad) and the crystal silverware, with glasses brimming with Iced Tea.
Or maybe that’s because you’re hungry.
Either way, you take a moment to look around the dining room: it’s rather different from those at the Stark Mansion. It’s more classical and luxurious, with a golden chandelier above and a sleek, wooden dining table with eight matching chairs – three at each side and a throne on each end – and an opaque glas
Masquerade-Chapter 2The next morning, you awoke to a spectacular Asgardian sunrise. It made you grateful for your situation; you remembered the constant darkness of Jotunheim from your youth. You pulled the silk sheets to the side, exposing the satin nightgown you wore, of your signature color. You sat up and lifted your arms over your head. You pulled your arms down as you stretched. You stood and ventured to your vanity to comb out your [h/c] hair. You shed your nightdress, sauntered to your closet and chose your outfit for the day: a long-sleeved shirt, skintight pants (both in your color), cloth-lined [gold or silver] metal bands on your upper arms and forearms, and a [f/c] and metal corset. You completed your ensemble with matching boots. You briefly admired yourself in the mirror, then opened your door and walked into the golden corridor.Masquerade-Chapter 22 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Hours had passed by as though they were only mere minutes as the three of you sat in the cold laboratory of St Bart’s, and yet as every hour passed by nothing had really changed. John was sat across from you at the workbench with his head resting on his folded arms, he had dozed off within the first half of an hour after you three had arrived. Sherlock had moved from sitting at one of the workbenches to the floor, bouncing a rubber ball against the floor that then hit off one of the cupboards before bouncing back to him. He constantly repeated the movement, making the thuds of the rubber ball’s impact against the surfaces echo throughout the silent lab.
Even though Sherlock had told you that no matter what he would try to keep you all safe, something deep inside your mind kept telling you differently. However way you thought about it, you couldn’t figure out just what Moriarty’s next act would be and what the consequences would be, yet your head knew that this w

With a killer headache you slowly and painfully opened your eyes, though no matter wither you had your eyes opened or closed only darkness engulfed your vision, except for a small beam of bright light straight ahead of you. You were lying on a cold tiled floor, you tried to move your hands from behind you only to realise that they were tightly tied behind your back. You had the feeling that you were in a tight compact room, the sound of a wooden brush or mop hitting the floor when you accidentally kicked it when forcing yourself to sit up and causing it to echo throughout the room confirmed your assumption.
As you staggered to your feet, you walked forward to what you believed was the door due to the beam of light coming from the gap at the bottom. Turning around so you were facing away from the door, you felt around for the handle, desperately trying to open the door and get the hell out of here before anything else happened. You fumbled around for what felt like forever, but was only

"John." Sherlock begins and then seems to just stop.
John rolls his eyes. "It's alright, I know why you're here, I'm not going to bother you, just wanted to make sure you didn't do any weird experiments on my stuff."
Sherlock just nods, seemingly nervous. He doesn't move; it's as if his feet are rooted to the rug he's standing on.
"Aren't you going to get on with it, then?" John asks. He knows his tone is blunt, and if he's honest, verging on rude, but he's not the one who has just broken into someone else's room. It seems especially egregious after nine months of no contact between the two of them.

No. She hadn’t noticed at all that she was being watched from a far.

You had to make sure he was alive and ok.
Yes, so he could be a right pain in the arse most of the time but he was your friend. And you were his -even though he would never admit to such a thing, ‘Caring is a disadvantage’ he had said.
You stopped dead in your tracks at the doorway of the flat.

Then, with a few more pinches of Beginning-Stuff, she made servants to look after her home and keep her company.

It's more than just a dream of surrealism,
Than to awake to this world of dire realism.
I'm seeing stars in my eyes,
Like supermassive black holes,
Or the rarest of honest cries.
Is this is a coma of my imagination?
Or was it more than mere fascination?
